arthritis drugs

The earlier post about anakinra got me wondering whether I had read about it anywhere.

Turns out Kineret® (anakinra) is some kind of interleukin-1 thing.

The one I was thinking about (I think) is Arcoxia, a COX-2 inhibitor from Merck.
I don't know how anyone keeps these things straight. We're all ending up talking language out of science fiction in order that everything have a unique brand name.

Here's an article from on The Newest Arthritis Medications.
